FLORIDA GOVERNOR CALLS FOR BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF’S SUSPENSION

on

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel (D) was overwhelmingly re-elected in 2016, but that was before county residents, the governor, the Speaker of the Florida House, the Attorney General and numerous others learned of his policy that placed student safety dead last.

Lawmakers have called for Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel to be suspended from his job for his department’s failure to follow up on 30+ warnings about the school shooter, and its delayed response to the school on February 14th after gunfire was reported.

FLORIDA GOVERNOR CALLS FOR ISRAEL’S SUSPENSION

Florida Governor Rick Scott has asked the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) to open a review of the sheriff’s performance.  And new scrutiny has been placed on the admitted failures of the Broward sheriff’s office in responding to a separate 2017 mass shooting at the Fort Lauderdale airport.

SPEAKER OF THE FLORIDA HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CALLS FOR ISRAEL’S SUSPENSION

In his Sunday letter, Florida House Speaker Richard Corcoran, called for Israel’s immediate suspension for “incompetence and neglect of duty.”

“Sheriff Israel failed to maintain a culture of alertness, vigilance and thoroughness among his deputies,” Corcoran wrote in the letter that was signed by 73 other members of the Florida House. “As a result of Sheriff Israel’s failures, students and teachers died.”

In a Monday interview on “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Speaker Corcoran called Israel’s behavior “dereliction of duty.”  He also said that law enforcement personnel who are guilty of dereliction of duty should be fired, without pension benefits.

The Florida House will be dragging Israel before them to answer questions about his office policies, and has subpoenaed Broward County Sheriff Office’s files.

BROWARD COUNTY COMMISSIONER CALLS FOR INVESTIGATION

Michael Udine, former mayor of Parkland and current Broward County Commissioner, thinks someone with national prominence should lead the investigation.  “My daughter had just left (the school), and my niece was hiding down the hall, so this is personal for me.  All of these agencies are filled with very good people, but they’re not going to get to the bottom of what they themselves did wrong, they’re going to be covering their backsides,” said Udine.  “Every branch of government and law enforcement failed these kids and failed this community, and what’s needed now is bigger than any one politician or any one law enforcement officer. It’s bigger than that.”

Israel has been seen all over TV everyday since the February 14th slaughter, becoming more and more arrogant with each TV appearance.

The attacks on Israel come at a politically tumultuous moment in Florida, as Republican lawmakers move forward with new gun-control proposals, including an increase in the minimum age for the purchase of all guns to 21, that are opposed by the National Rifle Association.

SHERIFF ISRAEL SEES HIMSELF AS A MEDIA STAR

Israel has been seen all over TV everyday since the February 14th slaughter, becoming more and more arrogant with each TV appearance.  Attending last week’s CNN gun-control town hall, he blamed the 5 million NRA members for the slaughter and called for tighter gun control.

But, his interview with Jake Tapper on CNN on Monday, was just extraordinary and cringe-worthy.  Even the Leftist CNN host was taken aback by Israel’s flippant answers.  He refused to accept any responsibility for his office’s failure to follow up on multiple warnings and multiple trips to Cruz’s house.

Sheriff Israel told Tapper “I have given amazing leadership to this agency.”  Viewers could feel Israel’s arrogance through the TV screen.

ABJECT FAILURE AT ALL LAYERS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT FOR A DECADE

There were many missed red flags that could have prevented this slaughter.  Both the FBI and local law enforcement – including Israel’s office – were told before the attack that the shooter, Nikolas Cruz, posed a danger to schools.  In the months before the shooting, callers urged officials to investigate, saying that Cruz was unstable, had weapons, and was a real threat.  Though Cruz was well-known to law enforcement, he had never been arrested and there was no known effort to remove his guns.

And Sheriff Israel wants the law-abiding to place their own safety in the hands of local police?

    What good is a liberal Democratic guard dog that hides under the porch when your life is being threatened?
